Step 1: Setting the Lens in Focus

Firstly you'll have to salvage the lens from a cheap Laser by opening up the laser and taking out the lens.Next using a duct tape/any kind of tape hook the lens onto the camera of your mobile Phone.

Step 2: Use a Camera Stand to Focus Onto the Specimen.

Place a circular rim of a torch on a Light Bulb(it's better if you use a white bulb) and place the microscopic slide on top of it next place the specimen which you wish to examine on top of the slide and use a camera stand to focus the lens onto the specimen.
